Bohemia is a lush region in the southwest corner of the Czech Republic that is rich in brewing tradition. The Bohemian were pioneers in brewing their beers clear and golden, using bottom fermenting lager yeasts. Trader Joe’s Bohemian Lager is brewed using the finest imperial pilsner malted barley and aroma hops, resulting in a wonderfully refreshing beer. Beer stats 5% ABV, 18 IBUs. Fermented using lager yeasts

12 oz bottle, from 6 pack, from Trader Joe’s for around $6 for six-pack, sign said "$1.08/bottle"

Aroma: Czech hops, spicy, maybe Saaz, but definitely spicy hops

Appearance: Golden, clear, white head

Taste: light bitterness

Palate: light body, thin texture, average carbonation, bitter finish

Overall: I’m a big fan of Saaz hops, but I haven’t had a lot of Bohemian Style Lagers, so when I saw this for $6 at Trader Joes I had to grab it. Good price. The taste doesn’t necessarily scream Saaz, maybe some other hops used, but it’s not a bad lager by any means. Good value for money. Has an almost bubblegum quality to taste, maybe from yeast or maybe from using other hops. Nice light bodied lager.

Aurelius (4530) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Pedestrian label, standard longneck. Clear, bright citrine beer with a wispy white head. Light, grainy-sweet lager malt aroma. Grainy, slightly sweet, oat tones, a little olive brine in the flavor. Crisp mouthfeel, medium to slightly light body, eurohops cling just a tad in the aftertaste. TJ’s Tallahassee.

Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joe’s - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium golden pour, soft, thin white head, no lacing. Aroma has some bready accents, a touch of spent grain. Classic lager flavor, a touch of bready maltiness, a touch of honey sweetness. Crisp mouthfeel. Pretty decent and a great price at TJ’s ($1.17).

6-Pack from Trader Joes’s. Non distinct aroma and appearance. Classic medium body with a nice white head. Taste is hops with hints of corn, pine and a slightly seer caramel finish. Drinks easy, not bad especially given the price.

radagast83 (5310) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Trader Joes bottle - 12oz. Poured a clear golden color with a pretty large white head. Aroma was notes of toasted malts, light grassy hops, some earthy notes. Flavor was grassy hops, light grain. Middle of the road. Great value though for what you’re getting.

12 oz bottle. BB 02/18/15. (Trader Joe’s) Greenville, SC.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Grassy hops, moderate bitterness and grainy malt in the aroma. The flavour is cardboardy malt, grassy hops and some bitterness. Not the worst Pilsener but a bit cardboardy.

"more refreshing than the vienna lager, and therefore better. nothing that’ll blow you away, but for $5 a six-pack? i’ll give that a light recommendation."
